New Boxer Dog Art

"As a white candle/ In a holy place, / So is the beauty/ Of an aged face." -  Joseph Cambell

I always enjoy getting in photos of senior animals.  I have had clients ask me to color their aged pets to look a bit younger and then I have had just as many people want to see each and every one of those grey hairs.  As a pet owner that has lost too many pets at too young an age I really adore a grey muzzle. Our Big Tommy is getting more and more grey each day and I celebrate those light hairs and I cross my fingers that he will be snow white before he leaves us.

This gorgeous boy looks like my daughter's Harley! Beautiful work, Rebecca. I see he is "kidney-beaning," something both my daughter's Boxers do!

Hey Wendy...thanks for dropping over. Hey Sherry, is the Kidney-beaning a way of laying:)

No...It is something they do with their bodies when they are excited and happy! They bend their bodies almost in half, giving it that kidney bean shape - all done while standing! Amazing really. Apparently it is a known Boxer trait!
